2010 U.S. Open First Round Result: Novak Djokovic Conquers Heat And Viktor Troicki

Fellow Serb Viktor Troicki took third-seeded Novak Djokovic to a full five sets in second-day action at the U.S. Open, winning the second two rather handily before succumbing. 

Temperatures in New York continued to adversely affect match conditions. Wilting rapidly under hellishly hot court conditions, Djokovic fell behind two sets to one (the second two weren't even all that close), before seeming to realize that the mercury wasn't going to drop in time to do him any good, and visibly bucking up to triumph, 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.
